Best descent in the eastern San Juans Great views, narrow singletrack, and flowy technical down. Best to leave a vehicle at the start of east fork road (USFS 667) then drive east up Wolf Creek pass (160) and start at wolf creek road (USFS 725). Or drive up the high clearance road to the top and just drop to the goods. It is possible to start at the top of the pass and go south on the CDT and connect to treasure, but the "trail" is super hard to find.

       Just saw that the FS built a new connector on the CDT to Treasure. We passed the new trail sign for Treasure Mtn trail today. Did not ride it though.

       This connector is in place and makes for a sweet descent off the CO trail

       Just rode this on 10/16/20 and was epic. There were about 5-6 downed trees, but otherwise was in great condition.
      If shuttling up CR725, make sure to stay right and continue on 725, not 725C.
      Also, if you find a cell phone, it's mine. Lol
